Real Estate News: Gross Domestic Product Updates

Tom Blog

Real Estate News: Gross Domestic Product Updates After six years and over $4 trillion of stimulus geared toward promoting economic growth, the final reading for 2014 first quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP) came in at -2.9%. Yes, that’s a negative number! This was worse than expected and the worst reading since the first quarter of 2009 which was at the height of the recession. The report showed that consumer spending fell which is a concern because consumer spending is one of the main drivers of economic health. Harsh winter weather early in the year was also noted as a key factor in the contraction. GDP, which is considered the broadest measure of economic activity, will be closely monitored to see if the second quarter report shows signs of improvement when it is released at the end of this month. Housing does continue to be a bright spot as new home … Continue reading

Real Estate: Results of the Latest Home Price Expectations Survey

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 12.31.07 PM

The latest Zillow® Home Price Expectations Survey was released yesterday and I thought I would share the results.  The survey of 106 economists, real estate experts and investment and market strategists asked panelists to predict the path of home values through 2018.   On average, panelists said they expect nationwide home value appreciation of 4.4% through the end of this year and expect home value appreciation to slow to 3.8% by the end of 2015 and to 3.4 percent through 2016. During the pre-bubble years from 1987 to 1999, home values grew at 3.6 percent per year.  The most optimistic group of panelists predicted a 5.8% annual increase in home values this year and predicted home values would rise roughly 12.6 percent above their 2007 peaks by the end of 2018. The most pessimistic predicted an average increase of 3.2% for all of 2014.

Don’t Regret Your San Diego Home Purchase

Home

Looking to buy a San Diego home? The online marketer Trulia just released the results of a recently conducted survey of 2000 homebuyers and the lead finding was that the vast majority said that it’s better to buy a home now rather than wait a year. This is primarily because of rising prices and predominant feelings that interest rates will also be higher. However, those who were in the process or have already purchased a home said that armed with the knowledge they have now, they would have done things differently. The top five homebuyer regrets are: I wish I had chosen a larger home: 34% I wish I had done more remodeling when I bought the home than I did: 27% I wish I had more information about the home before I decided: 22% I wish I had put more money down for the down payment: 18% I wish … Continue reading
